Editorial Reviews

Mia is a 21st-century academic, Ashlee is a 19th-century psychic, and Lilac is a 13th-century priestess; what these three women have in common may open a gateway to the Gene of Isis. Traci Harding's fanciful first entry in her Mystique Trilogy feels like The DaVinci Code meets Indiana Jones with an all-female cast. Edwina Wren's performance is formal but playful. Her voice has an old-fashioned edge to it, suited to the varied time periods and otherworldliness of this audiobook.

Publisher's Summary

The latest trilogy by a best-selling author.... Mia Montrose is a 21st-century Australian woman with a doctorate in ancient languages who has just scored the most promising job of her career. When Mia experiences mysterious happenings and forces beyond her control, she begins to understand that history does not always stay in the past.
Ashlee Granville is a 19th-century clairvoyant, forced to suppress her talents as she enters the marriage market of English upper-class society. But Ashlee is not a girl who likes to bow to the inevitable – she has plans of her own.
Lillet du Lac is a 13th-century woman, priestess of an ancient order now protected by the Cathar faith, who are making their last stand against the Roman Catholic Franks at the giant hill fort of Montségur. As the castle falls, Lillet escapes with something more valuable than any of their lives.
Despite the time, distance, and cultures that separate them, these women have several things in common. They belong to an ancient bloodline of Grail kings, protected by a Sion knight named Albray, and they are each compelled to visit an ancient mountain in the Sinai. This mountain contains the keys that may unlock a gateway to a dimension of light and the Gene of Isis.

Ho hum

Well, there wasn't a lot of bodice ripping, but it definitely fits into the "Outlander" type of style. I'm not a fan of perfect main characters that can do no wrong and this is the case here. I didn't love it and I won't be reading the rest of the trilogy, but I didn't mind finishing it. There's a few eye-roll worthy moments, but the reader is absolutely fantastic. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't great either.

Perfection

The first "if you loved Da Vinci Code" book that has really dazzled me but above all, the most masterful narration I've ever heard. A very, very safe bet and this recommendation comes from someone who finds 3 out of 5 downloads impossible to finish...bravo.

Gene of Isis

Brilliant book if you like Egyptian history/story telling and the belief in other parallel universes. Believable voices in character. Although got a little lost with all the time and dimension changes, the reader did an excellent job of remembering each characters voice.u

Mixed results

If you could sum up Gene of Isis in three words, what would they be?

I found the story it self an interesting and engaging subject but I found the dialogue of some of the characters to be rather cringeworthy. I'm not sure if this was down to the deliverygiven by the narrator or the content of the dialogue spoken between characters but it felt cheesey and unbelievable in parts. However once a few chapters in I was mostly too engrossed in the narrative to notice.
